Review: Prolific dub techno producer Rod Modell has spent much of the last year collaborating with long-term studio buddy Stephen Hitchell under the Echospace alias. Even so, he's still somehow found time to ready another solo album for regular home Soma (his fifth in total for the esteemed Glasgow-based techno label). While the CD version is presented as one continuous audio journey, this double-vinyl edition contains each track in its entirety. There are few surprises, but plenty of highlights: after all, nobody does this kind of hypnotic, meditative, ambient-influenced dub techno quite as well as Modell.

  3. In Trance (5:04)
  4. Seespotrun (4:57)
Review: Following a surprise two-year hiatus, Strenth Music Recordings founder Ramon Lisandra Quezada - known to you and me as DJ Qu - returns to action. While his productions are rarely less than solid, there's something particularly impressive by the variety of tracks served up here. Contrast, for example, the fiendishly druggy and wonky early morning techno throb of "In Trance", with the skewed, sample-heavy, tooled-up late night deep house of funk-fuelled opener "No Poetry". Note the differences, too, between the bouncy, percussion-rich drum workout "Brut" and closer "Seepostrum", a brilliant fusion of broken, military-sounding drum work and loopy, head-in-the-clouds motifs. While there may be plenty of subtle eclecticism on show, all four tracks are aimed squarely at peak-time club plays.

  4. Tocar (5:19)
Review: Toresch set a few tongues wagging with their 2016 debut album, Essen Fur Alle, so hopes are naturally high for this untitled follow-up. Once again, Detlef Weinrich (ALA Tolouse Low Trax) provides the moody, end-of-days music - think coldwave fused with early industrial and wayward electronica, and you're close - with Viktoria Wehrmeister penning the lyrics and adding half-spoken, half-sung vocals in typically stylish fashion. We're particularly enjoying the almost beat-less, weirdo ambience of "El Fuego" and the attractively angular fuzziness of "Guayabame", a track rich in lolloping tribal percussion and bleak electronics. That said, many may gravitate towards the moody minimal wave hypnotism of "Las Locas" and the rising, end-of-days synth-pop of "Tocar".

  5. Surrender (2:22)
Review: While his full-length excursions on Further have seen Manuel "Nuel" Fogliata explore the furthest reaches of leftfield electronica, his 12" singles largely remain a bastion of thrusting, dark-side techno (with an occasional side order of fizzing electro). This five-track excursion on Kontra is a little more varied in tone and texture, but is still weighed heavily towards the needs of dancefoors. Check, in particular, the rumbling, dub-flecked techno melancholia of "No Wonder", the pitch-black, Donato Dozzy-ish "Replica" and opener "Ballet", a beat-free excursion whose rising and falling melody lines surge forwards at a techno tempo. Elsewhere, "The Swan Song" is a fine chunk of bass-heavy, deep space electro, while "Surrender" is a clandestine slice of dark ambient sludge.

Deep House
  1. Zona Del Silencio (9:44)
  2. Unsound Mind (10:20)
Review: Another week, another killer release from Kiwi deep house sorts Chaos in the CBD. This one, a two-tracker on the In Dust We Trust label that they set up with pal John Sable earlier this year, is undoubtedly one of their strongest EPs to date. On the A-side you'll find the typically drowsy and atmospheric "Zona Del Silencio", a tactile and humid chunk of early morning deep house built around languid synth-bass and rolling, carnival-friendly percussion. The rolling bongo hits return on creepier flipside "Unsound Mind", the musical equivalent of stumbling through a rainforest at 3am while high on herbal remedies. As with many of the duo's productions, it subtly builds throughout, offering movement despite the hypnotic, slow-build nature of the track's construction.

  1. Invitation To Love
  2. Remember When
  3. Into The Night
Review: Dub techno doesn't come deeper than DeepChord, and Mike Schommer is one of those responsible for launching the legendary project. Making his return after 15 long years, Steve O'Sullivan's re-energised Mosaic Records is the perfect place to get reacquainted with the chap. "Invitation To Love" is as romantic as the title would suggest, letting gorgeous chords and pad washes ooze out over a steady ticking beat. The rhythm gets chopped up a little on "Remember When", while "Into The Night" heads into head-nodding dubstep territory with mammoth bass replaced by elegant Motor City synth shimmers.

Review: Ricardo Rodrigues hasn't been active as Industrialyzer for some years, but if there was ever an occasion to revisit the uncompromising techno alias, a release on Damon Wild's legendary Synewave label must surely be it. The Portuguese artist goes in on "Analog Planet" with fearsome intent, serving up that Robert Hood-flavoured mechanized, weaponised loop goodness that gets the business end of the night shaking the way it should. "Multiple Walls" is a funkier affair with a playful organ line, but then it's back to the darkside with the devilish "Orbit X", rounding out an EP of no-nonsense techno like momma used to make.

  2. Aim For The Yellow Sector (Alessandro Parisi remix)
  3. Saco Bay (Perseus Traxx remix)
  4. Night Ferry (Antenna remix)
Review: While they may have landed a fair while ago, it's great to see Emotional Response revisit Timothy J Fairplay's crucial early EPs with an absolutely on point remix package. Scientific Dreamz Of U brings his distinctive signal chain to "Stories Of Prison", using grinding synths and some snaking broken beats to create an early 90s trance mood to die for. Alessandro Parisi keeps things on a distinctly new wave tip for "Aim For The Yellow Sector", and Perseus Traxx brings a bold set of machine beats and technicolour synths to "Saco Bay". Antenna finishes the EP off by creating a winsome, wavey version of "Night Ferry" for sensitive souls to do the robot to.

Review: It doesn't get better than this... Two stand out tracks from Fluxion's seminal 2000 album Bipolar Defect are brought up to speed by another hugely respected dubsmith - DeepChords. Crisper in finish and with more hypnotic reverberations on the seashore synth ripples, Rod Modell has brought out all the aspects that made us fall in love with Fluxion in the first place and given them a contemporary studio finish. Sublime.

Review: Marcus Worgull and Danilo Plessow's Vermont project saw a couple of house music's most esteemed producers and selectors pursue an alternate musical avenue into ambient/balearic territory. The perfect musical accompaniment to Summertime road trips across the continent or for chilling with friends and loved ones at the beach house or by the campfire. Tracks from the II LP now get the remix treatment by some of the scene's biggest names here. Worgull's close associate and Innervisions boss Dixon is first up and remixes "Dschuna" into an evocative and life-affirming epic, in all its Afro and spiritually influenced glory that you could imagine him playing during one of his acclaimed DJ sets. "Skorbut" receives a shimmering disco-tinged remake by the one and only I:Cube of Versatile Records fame and also on the flip is Wassermann aka Wolfgang Voigt's totally epic Krautramatrik mix of "Paradigma" which takes the track deep into cosmic synth music territory.

Review: Since the early 1990s, Marco Repetto has been releasing material under a wide variety of aliases, most notably Bigeneric and Planet Love. Now, almost 30 years after his debut release, the Swiss producer has brought the two projects together on one hugely impressive set. Fables of Robotics contains a mix of previously unheard material from both projects, plus material that has never before been committed to vinyl. It's a hugely satisfying and entertaining affair that sprints between spacey, tuneful takes on classic Detroit techno, trippy, off-kilter late night deepness, proto-progressive house, deep space ambient and mid-'90s style British "intelligent techno". There's much to admire throughout and little in the way of filler. In other words, it's a fine release from a hugely talented and storied producer.

Review: UK don Luke Slater returns with the fourth instalment of Deep Heet. The last edition released in 2012 on his esteemed Mote Evolver imprint is recognised by those that know as some of the most reliable techno tools in recent years: who can forget the sinister hypnotism of "Flat Tire": what a classic! You can bet there's yet more austere and ergonomic tracks for serious DJ use on offer here. Starting off with the driving and cyclical grunt of "Desert Races", then the tunnelling and trance inducing bell melody of "Life Rhythm" representing the A side. On the flip, the full throttle intergalactic charge of Random Kingdom and the dystopian minimalism of "Lazer Organical" which would make even Mike Parker stand up and notice! Slater is still without doubt one of the most singular talents in techno, respect!

Review: Manchester's meandyou collective have quite rightly garnered increasing amounts of praise in recent times, and principal among the reasons for that must surely be the presence of Herron. Also found working with Joy O as C/OR, Herron follows up the excellent 2015 EP The Night Garden with another brooding selection of leftfield techno offerings for those who like something a little different in their club 12". "A6" keeps the mood close and cloying with its ominous textures and pitched down vocal shards, while "Bad Timing" does wonders with a monolithic yet nimble bassline. "Recycle" brings a dustier deep house vibe to the record, while "Cold Hands" lays down warm and inviting synth lines shot through with a necessary strangeness before "Close" rounds the EP off with a disheveled tour through Workshop-esque 4/4 dynamics.

Review: Hong Kong based label Fragrant Harbour has thus far supported work from choice leftfield beat candidates such as General Ludd, Fulbert and Renart, and this time turns its attentions to international outfit LPZ. There's a modernist, UK-leaning style to their brand of mutant techno, focusing on crooked, moody rhythms that sup from the same font as Livity Sound et al. "Triangular" crashes and bangs its drums through blissful pads before "Heliopolis" pushes the kick to the foreground and dives into more meditative depths. "In Flames" rides some dreamy breakbeat tones and "Luminescence" rounds the EP off with another crafty pairing of off-centre beats and soundsystem-ready tones.

  1. Low Orbit Satellite - "Unconscious Minds Club" (12:46)
  2. Heavenchord - "For Old Friends" (8:38)
Review: MixCult Records & Radio is a Saint Petersburg based radio station and record label that presents carefully selected deep minimal, dub techno and house music. It also includes vintage visuals and videos from Russia. The project aims to present the refined underground sound of music by presenting new tracks as well as gems from the past. Here they unleash two Russian virtuosos, who associate to build these masterpieces and follow up some great releases recently by Berlin's David Hausdorf and local hero Yudin. Side A is a riveting acid hymn by Russian DJ, sound engineer and producer Low Orbit Satellite, that will take you way back to the early '90s on "Unconscious Minds Club". Side B serves up some sublime dub techno action by Nirgoona aka Heavenchord on "For Old Friends" which channels the glacial bass driven immersion of locals such as Anton Kubikov or Sasha Kaktus, as much as it does legends like Rod Modell or Steve Hitchell.

Review: After three years away from the limelight, Lee Gamble has resurfaced not on original home PAN - where his skewed, intense, texture-laden club tracks and experimental soundscapes made him a darling of the left-of-centre techno set - but on Hyperdub. The move is reflective of the producer's shift in emphasis. You see, Mnestic Pressure is a notably different beast to its' predecessors. For starters, Gamble has chosen to focus more on non-linear rhythms, impressively breaking up the beats whilst retaining his trademark aural textures, crackling effects and densely layered signal noise. At the same time, his alternately restless and becalmed experiments come accompanied by more melodic flourishes, making the album an unusual but hugely enjoyable listening experience.

Review: Sushitech regular Delano Smith returns to the label with something rather special: a triple-vinyl collection of previously unheard tracks from his bulging archives. While there are a couple of alternative takes on previously released cuts ("Overseas (Version)" and "The Rock (Version)", the original versions of which sneaked out on Smith's Mixmode label back in the early 2000s), they're radically different enough to be considered fresh tracks. As you'd expect, the quality threshold is exceedingly high throughout, with the veteran producer delivering cuts that fuse the melodious and dreamy vibes of deep house with the rhythmic snap of Motor City techno. There's also a superb ambient diversion (the becalmed "Layover") and a dub-flecked trip into early morning deep space ("The 11th Hour").

Review: Paul Woolford returns with more cross-genre antics with a strong nod to the past, yet with a firm foot in the present on his new stomper for Houndstooth. The explosive title track will take you back to an NYC Storm Rave circa '94, full of Joey Beltram style hoovers and fierce breakbeats. Breakneck acid electro cut "Emutraxx" blows the bloody doors off, in the vein on Air Liquide or Jammin Unit. For a change of pace you can try the wonky slow burner "No Phone Calls" fuelled by a druggy 303 drawl and a lazy 4/4 beat, while Scandinavian noise terror Peder Mannerfelt works his magic as always on his jagged and angular remix of "Real": it's real brooding, you've been warned!
